Okay, maybe not so rare: I have one more from the trip: Hidden Falls, sketched on a hike. I do like working like this. It’s a little more abstract, I work slower, look more carefully at light and shade…and I like that it does to the whites.
We spent a couple of days in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After a few days of hikes and wildlife, we’re doing touristy stuff like watching the nightly reenactment of a shootout in the town square, and going to the rodeo. The rodeo was probably the hardest place to sketch at. The action happens way too fast. I found it really, really hard to capture that (to steal a phrase from Cartier-Bresson) ‘decisive moment’, eve when I was drawing tiny little blind-sketches.
It was much easier to draw the bucking horse and cowboy on the Cowboy Bar sign in downtown Jackson Hole.
Lots more sketches, from my trip, in this flickr set.
